Hello Everybody, welcome to my blog and welcome to the first day of May! I sure hated to see April go because I really love those cool nights and warm days. Get this, my favorite time to drink coffee is in the month of April. Yep! I think it's because I know that April is the last month that I enjoy hot drinks. For some reason in the hotter months I had much rather drink cold sweet tea instead because coffee is to hot and makes me sweat. Oh how much I love the taste of coffee though. Now on with the subject of May!

Events in May / by Wikipedia

Love Quote of the Day "Love sought is good, but given unsought is better." William Shakespeare Quote of the Day Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity. - Christopher Morley Short Joke of the Day A skeleton walks into a bar. The bartender says, "What'll you have?" The skeleton says, "A beer and a mop."
